The Four Times (Le quattro volte)

An old shepherd lives his last days in a quiet medieval village perched high on the hills of Calabria, at the southernmost tip of Italy. He herds goats under skies that most villagers have deserted long ago. He is sick, and believes to find his medicine in the dust he collects on the church floor, which he drinks in his water every day.

The main characters in “Le Quattro Volte’’ are a goatherd, a goat, and a tree. The goatherd dies, the goat is born, the tree is cut down and made into charcoal. There, I’ve just told you all of the plot and none of what happens in Michelangelo Frammartino’s hypnotic, comic, cosmic tone poem about the turning wheels of life on Earth. The setting is a tiny village in Calabria, in southern Italy, during the course of one year, but the specific time and place serve as a fractal for a larger picture, and a picture beyond that, and a picture beyond that — as macro as you want to get.
